Risks

Who is at risk for chronic pain? Due to the myriad conditions that could fall under this label, there is no one single, identifiable risk factor. However, it is known that women are more prone to fibromyalgia than men; and, TMJ is similar in that it affects more women than men. Theories exist for why any one person would have an elevated risk for chronic pain, and, with that, this community is trying to find answers.
